Transition Exhibition at The Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf

This was a very different location and presented a whole different set of problems for installing the work. My space was on the fourth floor between two huge windows. Initially I installed the work on the floor as it was intended to be a floor piece but in the middle of the day with bright sunlight streaming through the windows there was no way the shadow was going to work. So big rethink. I decided to put the work on the wall but that too presented problems since the walls were old fragile brick which crumbled every time I tried to attach anything to them. Finally with the help of strategically placed gaffa tape I managed to get the drawings fixed to the wall. By this time it was 7.30 in the evening and it was dark and finally we managed to get a grid shadow cast onto the surface of the drawing so at least it was going to work for the PV the following night. Famous last words! By the next morning one of the big drawings had fallen off the wall. However it was put back up and actually stayed there though it was fairly nerve-racking. The Bargehouse Building is an amazing building inside and out and the interior, certainly on the fourth floor, vied with the art work for attention. I couldn’t resist taking photos of the battered walls and the view out of the window onto the blue lights in the trees along the South Bank was magical. It was so warm people were wandering about in t-shirts as if it was midsummer. The PV itself was stuffed full of people so all in all very satisfying.
